I had a fight with God. Kind of one sided at the time; but I was upset and let Him know about it. I told Him what my problem was, how my faith was unshakeable, however, I didn’t believe that a particular person was going to come around. I also mentioned at this point, I didn’t want that person to come around any longer and that he could basically shove it. I am tired of this person’s current treatment of me and I was done. Over. Kaput!
Then, I went to sleep. Take that God! Do you know what He did? He put me in my place. All three “Daily Devotionals” I received yesterday morning had to do with said “conversation”. AND the current chapter of the Max Lucado bible study book I was on and read yesterday also addressed the situation. Let’s just say that God put me in my place and I humbly begged forgiveness in overstepping and taking my anger out on Him, when He was not the one I was mad with at the time.
Touché’ God, Touché’. Here I was, all up in His face with my anger, and He simply burst my bubble effectively. POP! Brought low by the Man! <sigh>
On a wonderful note, I sent a graduation card to a friend’s son who will be doing so in two weeks and I received the most wonderful thank you from the young gentleman. I was touched. The young man told me he was keeping the card with him so that when he needs motivation he’d refer to it. I wanted to reach through the internet and hug that child. ❤ I let him know that he touched my heart with his thanks and that I was available at anytime if he needed motivation or words from God. I know I told him that he would go far in life, to follow God’s plan, never give up even though people will hurt him and that he is special and God is there for him always. I even bragged to my women’s bible study this morning about what a great young man he is and a total gentleman.
It is rare today to meet such a wonderful young man who is a gentleman at heart. So many of the kids I’ve seen at my son’s high school are not. It is sad. I’m lucky that my son’s friends are the good ones. Of course, in this fast paced, rat race of a life we all live in, sometimes kids are left to practically raise themselves. It’s not fair to them and it’s not fair to their parents; but it’s how it has to be in a two income necessary society. My son has a friend who’s mom works three jobs as a single mom to two sons and I can only imagine how hard it is on them. However, her sons are held accountable for all their actions. She’s a strict task master.
I can only imagine how far my friend’s son will go in this life. As he goes off to college next year, I will pray for him and his future. The world is his oyster!
